UAW 1714 reaches tentative agreement with GM on local issues

Posted: Updated:
LORDSTOWN, Ohio -

A tentative agreement on local contract issues has been reached between General Motors and the employees who stamp out parts for the Chevy Cruze in Lordstown.

Leaders of UAW Local 1714 announced on Friday that the tentative pact was reached after what the union describes as difficult negotiations that included marathon nights at the bargaining table.

Earlier this week, Local 1714 President Robert Morales told 21 News that negotiations were stuck on issues such as temp employment, Skilled Trades training, and health care.

Morales says the union's demands were met in the contract,and there are no concessions in the pact.

The union has not yet disclosed terms of the pact, but says that a pamphlet outlining highlights of the agreement will be distributed to the membership soon.

Dates for voting on the tentative contract will be determined later.

According to its website, Local 1714 represents about 1,400 members.

Members of UAW 1112, which represents 3,600 production workers in Lordstown, will begin voting February 22 on a tentative aggreement covering local issues.

The issues addressed by the local contracts are separate from those covered by the new national agreement ratified by UAW locals around the country last year.
